Crucial to a knowledge of the perturbations of Robertson–Walker cosmological models are complete sets of functions with which to expand such perturbations. For the open Robertson–Walker cosmology an answer to this question is given. In addition some observations concerning explicit solution by separation of variables of wave equations for spin 1 in a Riemannian space having an infinitesimal line element of which the Robertson–Walker models are a special case are made.
